Punter scoops £24,205 from £20 bet


A lucky William Hill customer has won £24,205 after placing a £20 treble on three football matches.

The punter backed Lyon, Rochdale and Benfica to all have halftime leads but not go on to win the match.

Lyon were 2-0 up at the break as they hosted Hoffenheim in the Champions League, the German team bagged themselves a lifeline as Andrej Kramaric pulled one back after 65 minutes before Pavel Kaderabek equalised two minutes into stoppage time to deny the French club a win.

Jonas fired Benfica into the lead 15 minutes before the break, but former Southampton forward Dusan Tadic equalised for Ajax in the second half to earn the Dutch club a 1-1 result.

Rochdale hosted Leicester Under-21's in the EFL trophy and also let slip a two-goal advantage as Calvin Andrew and Jimmy McNulty gave Keith Hill's side a 2-0 lead after just 17 minutes.

However, Alexandru Pascanu pulled one back 11 minutes later, Rochdale held on to finish the first half in the lead by 2-1.

In the second half, Ryan Loft equalised for the visitors to complete the final leg of the treble as the fixture ended 2-2.
